Default Borkan Fire Warriors and Banner Bearer

http://s296.photobucket.com/albums/m...re%20warriors/

Here is the photobucket link to my freshly done Firewarriors. Yeah! Theyre all done, now I can paint some suits!

I made a banner bearer from the standard trooper. I made the banner out of a thin sheet of green-stuff and the pole is a bunch of burst cannon barrels glued end to end. Its all very light and still slightly flexable, so ive dropped it one or twice and its not broken.

Very good work there, Col. Angus!
Your choice of colors are very good, I might do something similar once, if that's okay.

The first thing I noticed when I looked at them, was that they looked "warm",
even though you have used very cold colors here. I think your brilliant shading gave that effect.
The markings are very good as well, was it freehand?

As for the bases, are you gonna add some sand/snow/stuff on it, or just keep them black? Or have you allready gotten some sand/snow/stuff on, but the pics just don't show it?

Also, could you take an individual pic of a Fire Warrior?
I'd like to be able to see all the details.


Very, very good work Col. Angus.

Very, very good work Col. Angus.
Thanks!

a) the sept marking on the banner was traced from a circle stencil about the same size I needed, then the details inside the circle was freehanded. Not easy, but fortunatly the sept has a basic symbol design

b) I left all the bases undone, since I do them all at the same time once the whole army is done for consistancey. It will be a thawing snow look to the bases with tan turf and thick snow patches with the occasional rock or battle scrap.

c) Ill take some individual pics and add them here soon.

I love the banner barer, but I love the guy next to him with his helmet off even more. He actually looks cold and uncomfortable. I can see him thinking "dammit, can't read these sensors with the helmet on, but its too bloody cold here to take it off...grumble..grumble..."

again excellent paint job, and thematically a great look. As has been said it works very well compared to the usual very clean tau paint jobs.

Keep up the great work

Thanks. Yeah its like he is tracking something just before a Whompa jumps up behind him. If the Tau get rules for exo riders I should sculpt some taun-tauns
